There are three different settings of water temperature from luke
warm to hot.

the water flow from a trickle to a full blast.

over my shoulder to see how the Bidet actually worked.

which has three different heat settings.

Types of Toilets

Type # 3 Toilet - Flush Valve Operated Toilet: This type of toilet is usually found in many public and commercial rest rooms. This toilet has no tank.
